Try an alternative to the typical vegan or vegetarian spaghetti and pasta sauce. Borrow from raw veganism and use uncooked collard greens cut in thin strips to resemble pasta. Just roll tightly 3 -4 collards together in a bunch at a time to resemble a cigar, and slice thinly. The sliced collards will simulate almost a spiral formation when cut thin. Cut as much collards as you want and place in individual serving pasta bowls. Now here's the fusion part: cook your favorite marina pasta sauce and serve over the uncooked cut collards. You can add heated falafel balls or any vegan/vegetarian style heated veggie balls to toss on top of the collards and pasta sauce. A deliciously warm, yet crunchy meal. The collards retain their nutritional value without being overly cooked. Mangiare Bene! - Italian word for good eats!
